BTC Below $16,880 Support; Will It Follow a Positive Traction?

Last Updated:
  • Bitcoin is far away from its $21,000 price in November 2022.
  • Currently, BTC hovers at $16,715.
  • VC Tim Draper predicts that BTC would reach $250K in 2023, which is impossible according to analysts.

Although Bitcoin (BTC) and other major coins nosedived due to the FTX collapse in November, some price predictions hold the optimism that BTC will reach $250,000 in 2023.

In a CNBC program, Tim Draper, founder of Draper Venture Network, recently forecasted that BTC will reach $250K in the next year, despite FTX’s collapse. However, this prediction is impossible in the eyes of other analysts, as BTC is not even above $60,000.

As of this writing, BTC exchanged hands at $16,715, a 0.28% dip in the past 24 hours. The 1-day trading chart of BTC signifies that the coin is just below the $16,880 shortest support zone.

If BTC breaks this support zone in intraday trading, it can reach back to its previous resistance of $17,100 in the following days. Notably, after a uniform price movement since the end of November, BTC spiked to $18,388 on December 14 due to the FOMC meeting. 

Adding on, 20-day EMA shows that the candle is near the EMA line, but the chances for the price to hit the line are less in intraday trading.

From another viewpoint, BTC retraces the same pattern of the September 13 – November 5 time frame. In this regard, there would be a slight surge in the coming days. 

Significantly, the upcoming economic events such as IFO Business Climate Index and CBI Industrial Trends would also contribute to the future price trends of BTC and other coins.
